Strong winds, rough seas alert

The Meteorological Department yesterday issued an advisory for strong winds and rough seas in the deep and shallow sea areas to the North-West, West, South and South-East of Sri Lanka.

Issuing an amber colour (be prepared) advisory, the Natural Hazards Early Warning Centre requested naval and fishing communities to be vigilant.

“The sea area off the coast extending from Mannar to Colombo via Puttalam and the sea area extending from Galle to Pottuvil via Hambantota can be rough at times as the wind speed can increase up to 50 – 60 kmph at times. Other sea areas can be fairly rough at times as the wind speed can increase up to 45 – 50 kmph at times,” the advisory read.
